Hodge Podge Wednesday 24 March 2010

Congratulations, you survived to the middle of the week.  Its time to get over the latest socialist victory on health care and see who is still in the fight 🙂

The Thomas More Law Center filed suit moments after President Obama signed the so-called health care reform bill into law in a televised White House ceremony, the Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor Michigan, filed a federal lawsuit challenging its constitutionality in the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

Among the allegations of the lawsuit are the claims that Congress had no authority under the Commerce Clause to pass the law; that by usurping the power reserved for the states and the people, Congress violated the Tenth Amendment; and that by forcing private citizens to fund abortion, contrary to their rights of conscience and the free exercise of religion, Congress violated the First Amendment.

Thompson concluded, “Americans agree that our health care system needs reform.  But they don’t want a federal takeover of the system in the process.  And they don’t want reform by trampling on our Constitution.”   [Read copy of Complaint].

Bart Stupak Still Waiting for the Great PumpkinA Doug Powers post at Michelle Malkin.

A White House official told Fox, Obama will not sign the Executive Order Tuesday and has set no specific date to do so. Stupak predicted Obama would sign the order later this week. The White House said only that Obama would sign the order “soon.

 

Political Cartoons by Michael Ramirez

 Doug Powers, Val Prieto, and La Shawn Barber are filling in for Michelle Malkin while she is off on vacation.  They have already posted several good  items.

Racial Preferences in Obamacare By La Shawn Barber is a very good read noting the discriminatory practices buried within the health care bill.

Let me be buried on this spot! By Val Prieto is a stirring patriotic piece based on a speech made by Patrick Henry at the Virginia House of Burgesses in 1775.  Val draws a good comparison between the struggles of our Founding Fathers and the struggles the Keepers of  Liberty are facing today.  I have to agree with the statement “we are living somewhat resonant historical moments”.  Afterall, we are no longer a representative government when the tyrants stop listening to the people and vote away our rights.

Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit has an excellent post on  MEDIA FRAUD– More Proof That the Leftist Media Lied About Racist Attacks On Black Reps While They Ignored Vulgar Attacks By Lib Politicians.  The title provides the gist of the article, the pictures posted provide the evidence. 

Tea partiers vow revenge over health overhaul By BRENDAN FARRINGTON

IRS looking to hire thousands of tax agents to enforce health care laws By Jonathan Strong notes the IRS will take the lead on enforcing the tax and penalty initiatives buried within the health care bill.  I could not help but notice the mandate to increase the number the audits.  The IRS will hire over 16,000 new public funded employees on the taxpayer’s dime.

Job Hunt: Blue Collar Workers Struggle Most by: Molly Line details the disparity between the job losses of blue-collar vs white-collar workers, noting 7 out of 10 jobs lost are blue-collar.

I will end this post with a thought-provoking Michael Ramiriz cartoon that mixes guns, politics and humor together in one neat package.  I wish I had the talent to do such things 🙂

And there we have it folks your Hodge Podge Wednesday.  Thanks for reading and please share with your friends and loved ones.  I hope everyone has a really great day 🙂
